Helpful Home Items for Your Kitchen
I spend a lot of time in my kitchen—whether that’s cooking for my family or creating new content and new recipes.
So, if I can find a handy and helpful item, I’m all for it!
I love silicone baking mats because they’re naturally nonstick and they stay put when you place them on a pan or on the counter.
This silicone baking mat has some great reviews and it’s on sale for just $12!
And if you’re a fan of eggs, you’ll have to snag this Dash egg cooker.
Whether you like hard-boiled eggs, soft-boiled eggs, poached eggs or omelettes, you can make it easily with this cooker!
Trust me… you don’t want to look under my kitchen sink… it’s a pan junk drawer!
That’s why I have my eye on this pan and lid organizer which has space for 10 lids and pans. Plus, it’s expandable so you can fit it in large or small spaces.
Speaking of lids… check out this Tupperware lid organizer.
I can’t be the only one who has trouble keeping food containers in order. But thanks to this organizer, snagging that lid you actually need is simple!
Whether you’re baking and cooking with citrus juice, or you like to have some on hand to put in your water, this mini citrus juicer should help you get all of that goodness out of your lemons and limes.
I’ve shared my love for Stasher sandwich bags in the past… but they’re truly such a great investment!
They’re made with food-grade silicone and they’re dishwasher, microwave and freezer safe! Not to mention, much better for the environment than disposable bags.
Are you a pulled pork or chicken lover? Your life just got easier thanks to these meat shredder claws!
Of course, you can pull apart your meat with forks, but these claws give you more control and if you ask me, they’re just more fun to use.
Have you ever cut open a container and realized how much sauce was still left inside? Even when you couldn’t squeeze any more out?
Well, this kitchen Spatty will help you get out every last drop so nothing goes to waste!
Cleaning the microwave is not a fun task.
With that said, it doesn’t have to be difficult because this angry mama microwave cleaner will help you clean out every splatter with ease.
Say goodbye to bulky strainers with help from this clip-on pot strainer!
It features two strong-grip clips that keep it secure when you pour out your water. It’s also dishwasher-safe for easy cleaning.
If you run into the struggle of opening jars and containers, this under-cabinet jar opener may be a good investment.
It sits inconspicuously under your counter and can help you open jars of all sizes.
Other Helpful Home Items
Why stop at kitchen items when there are plenty of affordable household items too?
Take this makeup brush cleaner for example. Those makeup brushes can get pretty nasty with all of that build-up…
But all you have to do is add a bit of cleanser and water to your brush and you’ll have those brushes looking sparkly clean in no time!
You know Megan. And one of the things I’ve learned over the last couple of years we’ve worked together is that she loves household hacks just as much as I do!
According to Megan, this Grandma’s secret spot remover is the best stain remover on the market. She said she’s used it for years and it’s never failed her!
Here’s a tool I just recently discovered on the web. It’s a rechargeable electric lighter and it can hold up to 300 lights per charge!
These space-saving bags are… dare I say it… life-saving bags.
They’re great for storing coats and bulky winter clothing during the warm months, and they’re also ideal for household linens you want out of the way.
Don’t laugh… This Poo Pourri is a must in all of my bathrooms!
All you have to do is spritz before you go and it creates a layer on top of the water that prevents any scent from making its way into the air.
Is carrying all of those grocery bags getting a little complicated? It doesn’t have to be thanks to the mighty handle bag carrier!
Just place the handles of the bag on the hooks, and you’ll only have to use one hand to carry multiple grocery bags.
How nifty are these adhesive lights?
You can place them on your nightstand, in a drawer, in your closet… really, anywhere! And you don’t have to worry about turning them on and off since they’re triggered by motion.
If you don’t have room for an ironing board, use this magnetic ironing mat instead.
It goes right on top of your washer or dryer, and because it’s magnetic, it won’t slip!
While we’re in the laundry room, I want to show you these mesh washing bags.
This pack comes with a large bag and a small bag. They’re great for delicates or all of those socks that mysteriously go missing when you do a load of laundry.
I’m sure we can all use something to make our lives easier, so I hope you find this list of helpful home items handy!
